    Washington Examiner ^ | June 19, 2018 | Susan Ferrechio
    Senate Democrats indicated Tuesday they may not agree to narrow legislation that would end the separation of children from parents who cross into the country illegally at the southern border. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., refused to say if he and other Democrats would support a bill that Republicans are working on, and when pressed, said several times that President Trump should act on his own to stop these family separations from happening. "Let's hope we never get to that. Let's hope the president does the right thing and solves the problem, which he can do," Schumer said. "That's...

    Saying she was impressed with “Kim’s ability to wrap Trump around his finger,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi attributed it to “having a nuclear bomb in his pocket,” and vowed that the Democratic Party will “seek ways of acquiring one or more similar devices to give us more punch in our negotiations with the President.” Characterizing the recent Singapore summit between Kim and Trump as “as horrible a ‘deal’ as one could imagine,” Pelosi ticked-off the highlights of what she insisted was “a net loss for America and the world. First, Trump shook Kim’s hand. This show of manners to...
  • Desperate Democrats, Never Trumpers and their Media die Politically.

    Let us see how many Democrats will go forth to the vast numbers of the American voters with their "immigration" fantasies. Let us see how many Democrats will bet their re-election on their immigration stance. Democrat, Joe Manchin has already caved...expect more Dems to do the same. They cannot and will not beat Trump down. Who is going to do it? Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, Clinton, Laura Bush, Michelle Obama, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Time Kaine, The biased Media, Kathy Griffin, Jimmy Kimmel, etc. Ya gotta be kidding me!!! The Democrats, the ones with still some brains left...realize the...
  • Trump Says Democrats Want Immigrants to ‘Infest’ the U.S.

    The Atlantic ^ | June 19, 2018 | David A. Graham
    What are infestations? They are takeovers by vermin, rodents, insects. What does one do with an infestation? Why, one exterminates it. One of the paradoxes of modern-day American politics is that white identity politics can be a potent political platform, as long as you don’t call it that. Policies with racist effects are often popular; explicit racism is verboten. Thus Donald Trump can win the presidency while running, as my colleague Adam Serwer documented, on a program of discrimination, but when Corey Stewart, a Republican politician in Virginia, makes his white-identity politics too explicit he gets shunned by the GOP....

    Lawmakers would bring students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to Capitol Hill for the summer. Student survivors of gun violence descended on Washington en masse earlier this year during the massive March for Our Lives on March 24. Now some lawmakers would like to bring them back for an entire summer. House Democrats are inviting students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida — who survived a mass school shooting in February — to come intern in their offices, working on gun violence prevention....

    This week actor Robert De Niro wowed the audience at the annual Tony Awards with what many are characterizing as “the most powerful, elegant, and irrefutable argument against the Trump agenda ever uttered by anyone.” De Niro’s brief message consisted of two simple words: “F*ck Trump.” The audience gave him a standing ovation. Tom Perez, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee called De Niro’s statement “simple, but remarkably brilliant. I don’t know why no one else thought of it before now. If we had used this insight back in the 2016 campaign the horrible outcome could’ve been averted. All is...
  • Planned Gridlock or Traffic Relief? Governor Hogan’s Traffic Relief Plan Offers Hope

    Montgomery County GOP ^ | June 18, 2018 | Mark Uncapher, MCGOP Chairman
    Any Montgomery County voter looking for traffic relief will not get much hope from the transportation manifestos of Montgomery County’s “progressive” Democrats this primary season. Collectively, they all try to outdo each other in their opposition to anything involving spending for roads. Instead of supporting projects that will reduce travel times, they propose diverting more money to public transit. They push a strategy of “planned gridlock” that is intended to drive motorists from their cars. If alleging “planned gridlock” seems harsh, consider the Montgomery County Council legislation designed to slow traffic flow by significantly narrowing travel lane widths on some...

    Meanwhile, the same lawmakers who allow abortion on demand on the grounds of ‘Womens’ Rights’ call the White house administration “thugs” for separating families—by deceitfully using faux pictures to prove it. The mysterious resurfacing of viral Internet photos of supposedly locked-up children tearfully separated from their parents—from the 2014 Barack Obama era—even after being exposed on their timing—are still out there roping dopes. This time, no less than former 1st Lady Laura Bush is the big Rope-a-Dope victim in spite of it being unprecedented for the former First Lady to criticize the policies of the current president.

    Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of President Bill Clinton and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, used Father’s Day to advocate for open borders, saying “no parent” and “no person” should be supporting President Trump’s crackdown at the U.S.-Mexico border. Clinton displayed her outrage online at Trump’s plan to construct a tent city near El Paso, Texas, to house unaccompanied minors who arrive in the U.S. by crossing the southern border.

    Democrats agree that Donald Trump’s history of bragging about groping and assaulting women is unacceptable, but they don’t agree about how to deal with it in 2020. The tension has spilled into the open in the ongoing debate about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s role in galvanizing Senate Democrats to call for Sen. Al Franken to step down over misconduct. Even white college-educated women, Hillary Clinton’s biggest supporters, are divided. “We loved him,” Marsha Pearcy, 58, said sadly to Gillibrand at a private event for professional women in Washington on Tuesday night. Pearcy barely finished saying Franken’s name when quiet murmurs and...

    The U.S. government’s policy detaining migrant parents while sheltering their children elsewhere is reminiscent of Adolf Hitler’s slave-labor camps, according to a Tweet from former intelligence chief and NeverTrump activist Gen. Michael Hayden. Hayden, who ran the National Security Agency from 1999 to 2005, and was CIA director from 2006 to 2009, Tweeted an image of the entrance to the Birkenau slave-labor camp, with the comment “other governments have separated mothers and children.”

The Father's Day episode was the latest in a series of similar trips by Democratic lawmakers to immigration detention centers, which are part of a broader effort to draw attention to the family members who have been separated by federal authorities while illegally crossing the border from Mexico into the...

    Last spring, as Central American children flooded into Texas in a way he had never seen in his three-decade career, Border Patrol agent Robert Harris decided to experiment. His intelligence analysts estimated that 78 percent of the guides smuggling other migrants were Mexicans younger than 18 — teenagers often hired or conscripted by drug cartels that knew they would not be prosecuted if caught — and he wanted to attack this loophole. “Why don’t we remove these juveniles from the smuggling cycle?” Harris, the outgoing commander of the Laredo sector of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, recalled thinking. Now, as...

    Democrats are looking to seize on growing public worries about data privacy to rally voters in the upcoming midterms. Tech policy typically ranks low on an average voter’s list of priorities, prompting skepticism that data privacy can rally move the needle in an election. But in a couple key Senate races in Nevada and Arizona, Democratic campaign groups say public frustration over how corporations are able to suck up increasing amounts of consumer data could make a difference. They specifically want to use last year’s congressional vote to repeal broadband privacy regulations to attack Republicans. Only 15 House Republicans voted...

Just as he did with his tax reform package and his meeting on Immigration with Democrats months back....he has them heading for a corner they cannot back out of, unless they to vote to pass "Trumps" immigration package. Not one Democrat voted "Yea" on Trump's tax reform package, or Trumps legislation that would have given legal status and citizenship to 1.8 million DACA folks. The Dems wanted a canpaign issue, instead. The Democrats are going wild over their newest tact for winning the Mid-Term elections...beating...

"I didn't mean that. I meant he's dumb," Giuliani told CNN's Chris Cuomo during an interview Friday on "Cuomo Prime Time." Asked about a potential Biden-Trump match-up in 2020, Giuliani told HuffPost in an interview posted Friday that "Joe Biden is a moron. I'm calling Joe Biden a mentally deficient idiot."

    The odor of decomposing bodies has renewed calls to replace a county morgue in northern Illinois. The Daily Herald reports the Kane County morgue only has room for two bodies in its freezer. The facility has seen a sudden influx of decomposing bodies over the past few weeks. Officials have been storing the bodies in coolers, which doesn't completely mask the smell. Employees in neighboring buildings have started to complain.
